I started looking at #KernelLisp during holidays, so I could escape the frenzy of family meetings.
In a few days I have read the whole report draft and implemented an interpreter… I think I’m hooked.
It feels exactly the same way than when I discovered #Scheme some years ago. Awesome magic backed by beautiful mathematical concepts.
Out of curiosity, is your implementation anywhere to be viewed? I've wanted to take a whack at an implementation, myself, but am not really certain where to even begin.
Haha; entirely fair. 'Still should be interesting, though.
I'd definitely love seeing more people implement this, though, and it get traction. The language is so cool. Best of luck, when you use the more low-level language!
@WammKD If you want to read nice implementations of Scheme (since it’s quite close to Kernel), I really suggest you read SICP if you haven’t yet.
It has multiple ones, in decreasing level of implementation language, and is very very good at explaining how they work. 😁
